The concerned youth of Simawa Community in Makun, Sagamu, Ogun State have raised alarm on the serious threat to lives and properties of the residents of their community by the land grabbers allegedly sponsored by the Oniraniken of Iraniken, Sagamu.
They are surprised that despite all the previous atrocities committed by Oniraken’s sponsored land grabbers which led to the arrest of three members of the deadly criminals who were in possession of firearms and their detention, it was gathered that the Oniraniken has the effrontery to forcefully return to his criminal act that may lead to communal clash if not being timely addressed by Remo traditional council and Ogun State Government.
Most worrisome is the involvement of the AIG zone 2 who was said to have detailed some armed police officers of the D7 under whose watch the land grabbers have been unleashing terror on the innocent residents of Simawa Community.
It was also gathered that the AIG zone 2 and the DPO of Sotubo in Sagamu have been allegedly promised acres of land as compensations for their illegal support.
On this note, the community is calling for the interventions of the Inspector General of police of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to forestall the breakdown of law and order in the community.
It is also pertinent to state that since there is a law against land grabbing in Ogun State, the Executive Governor of Ogun, Prince Dapo Abiodun, Mfr, has a major role to play in this situation being the Chief Security Officer of Ogun State.’
The Concerned youths of Simawa therefore “appeal to all and sundry to consider saving the souls of Simawa residents as their responsibilities.”
Meanwhile, the Ogun State House of Assembly on Thursday, 31st of march 2 passed a resolution urging the State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, to constitute a special task force on Anti-land grabbing, anti-cultism, and other related offences across the three senatorial districts of the state.
The passage of the resolution followed a motion moved by the Majority Leader Sheriff Yusuf, seconded by a member representing Ijebu North I State Constituency, Sylvester Abiodun, and supported by other lawmakers at a plenary presided over by the Speaker, Olakunle Oluomo, at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta
They called for an urgent constitution of the task force against the menace of cultism and land grabbing as provided in line with the State Anti-Land grabbing Law, 2016.
The house resolution was prompted by the presentation of a member representing Abeokuta South 2 State Constituency, Ademuyiwa Adeyemi, who reported cases of rivalry cult clashes in some parts of the State resulted in killings and apprehension by residents of communities in the State.
He said the incidents had made them hurriedly close their businesses.
However, Oluomo quoted “Sections 6(2), and 14 (2) of the Law, stated that, “any person who enforces or uses agents for the enforcement of any judgment in respect of a landed property except as provided under the Sheriff and Civil Process Law is guilty of an offence and liable to a fine of five million naira or imprisonment of ten years or both such fine and imprisonment.
